Brendan Rodgers’ side have looked in good nick of late.

The ex-Liverpool boss was forced into a change with Scott Brown serving a one-match ban following his dismissal last week.

Utilising youth

Ewan Henderson got the nod to make his first start for the club.

The 18-year-old capped a stunning performance by claiming the Man of the Match award.

Academy graduate Henderson made his debut towards the back end of last season, coming off the bench against Kilmarnock.

Henderson didn’t look at all phased by the occasion and showed maturity way beyond his tender years.

His debut went swimmingly and he even claimed an assist for Edouard’s first goal.

 

His performance had Celtic supporters gushing with pride following the contest.
